AIA, LEED AP BD+C

Associate Principal

Dade joined the VMDO team in 2013 and has over 20 years of experience working for prominent architecture firms and institutions of higher education up-and-down the east coast, including UVA’s Office of Facilities Planning & Construction. Dade has established himself as a key contributor to the firm’s higher education concentration, managing some of VMDO’s most large and complex projects to date – including VMDO’s designs for Clemson University’s Core Campus, Virginia Tech's Creativity and Innovation District, and George Washington University's Thurston Hall Renovation.

Dade’s varied experience and deeply involved approach produce creative designs that are well-informed and functionally sound. His careful project management style and extensive experience ensure that projects are delivered on-time and under-budget.
